The School of Art offers an exceptional opportunity to study in Italy at the Orvieto International Institute of Classical Studies. The Institute is located in the central town square of Orvieto, one of the most beautiful and historic locations in Italy. Perched dramatically on a massive plateau, you will study in a city with picturesque views, stunning architecture, and unique cultural traditions. Archaeological sites such as Underground Orvieto, the Crocefisso del Tufo Etruscan cemetery and the Cannicella ruins of Etruscan, Roman, and Late Antique civilizations are nearby.
Courses are taught in the spring, summer, and fall. All courses are in English with professors alternating each semester. Past offerings have included:

GRADUATE STUDIO ART EXCHANGE OPPORTUNITY
Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia
Each year, a School of Art patron underwrites partial expenses for a graduate student to participate in an exchange program with the Academy of Fine Art and Design in Bratislava. The Academy sends one student to UA in the fall, and the School of Art chooses one student to participate each spring.

Many other study abroad opportunities exist through the Office of International Affairs. In addition to operating its own programs, Study Abroad counsels students on study abroad programs run by other American universities, private companies, and foreign universities. It also offers an extensive library of literature and videotapes on specific programs.
